It appears your load balance sensor has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My Kenmore elite washer would get the UL error on almost every load no matter the size. The machine sounded like it was self destructing. I replaced the suspension rods and that was the fix for me. It will still get a bonafide UL error but now it works like when it was new. In my case the suspension rod spring in the upper left position was rusted badly and had lost a lot of it's tension. If you have mechanical ability this is a 30 minute fix. This link is a YouTube video that shows how to replace the rods. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9E0bzeMRGlI

I have an kenmore elite =sm9711174. the spin cycle does not always start. i have to manually spin a couple times then it starts, but now does not spin fast. only slow. do i need a new belt?


this washer does not have a belt. The motor is a direct drive. it should give you a error code at time if it is unable to spin. some codes are F-51, F-dl, and UL. from the sounds of it the main board may need to be replaced part#W10189966.

Youshould make sure that the washer is on a concrete floor andmake sure it is level.
Do not put the washeron a wooden floor that moves when you jump up and down. Any ecentric loads will cause the washing machine tovibrate more.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis washer unbalanced signal seems to be very sensitive. Only after several tries of readjusting the load to get it really even that the washer will spin without stopping. I made sure...


If the washer throws an UL error code with out any clothes in the washer then the issue must be concerned with the mechanical alignment inside the machine or a bad CCU.

The most common problem which can cause this is some sort of mechanical hinderance which does not allow the basket to move freely.

The suspension system which holds the basket in its place might be faulty and causing the unbalancing. In this model i think there are plastic ring at the bottom of the basket . Even if they are worn out or moved out of position it may cause the UL error code you are facing

Constantly off balance


I have a kenmore elite oasis top loading washer about 3 years old. I took it apart and checked the springs and the rods and the plastic ends that hold the rods in place and all of them look fine. I run an empty load in the washer and it still goes unbalanced on the spin cycle. My water bill has tripled due to the fact that every load takes 3 to 4 washings. I need help please!
